This is the stuff I'm looking for. Please elaborate.
Cohabitation before marriage is usually, according to the stats, a relationship killer. Other than age at marriage it is the most indicative factor assosciated with failed relationships i.e. divorce. If you arent engaged or set on marriage why move in with someone, the breakup would be killer-living with the ex and who moves and who gets what etc.. Dont do it unless you are sure she is the one and you think she can handle neglect and still support you in law school not distract you. My wife knows the first year she is going to get little attention and that I need her help with house stuff and dinner, she is prepared to sacrifice and support me during this time. You should take that kind of stuff into consid first.
I'm a second semester 1L. She is used to neglect as a result of me studying.
Regarding the cohabitation before marriage statistic, how is it correlated with divorce? You mean that couples that live together before marriage have higher divorce rates than couples that don't live together before marriage?
Thanks for your advice.
